ClimateXChange researchers presented the cost and potential of carbon abatement from the UK perennial energy crop market at a workshop supported by WholeSEM (Whole System Energy Modelling), a new RCUK funded collaboration between UCL, Surrey, Imperial and Cambridge.
The initiative aims to understand:
- How energy demand co-evolves with changes in practice, supply, and policy
- How the endogenous, uncertain, and path dependent process of technological change will impact future energy systems
- How the energy supply-demand system can be optimised over multiple energy vectors and infrastructures
- What are the major future physical and economic interactions and stresses between the energy system and the broader environment.
